Youth-laden Saginaw Spirit has filled its third overage spot by obtaining center Mason Kohn from the Oshawa Generals for a fourth-round pick at the 2020 Ontario Hockey League draft.

Kohn, who is originally from Florida, joins goalie Evan Cormier and defenseman Marcus Crawford as Saginaw’s trio of overagers.

Saginaw general manager Dave Drinkill said Kohn adds some needed experience to the Spirit lineup.

“As an organization we felt it was very important to fill our last (overage) spot with a player that has a lot of experience in this league, a high compete level and a high work ethic,” Drinkill relayed. “Mason will help our leadership group mentor and grow the young players we have assembled.”

Kohn, who began his OHL career with the Kitchener Rangers in 2013 playing for current Saginaw coach Troy Smith, had totaled 44 goals and 128 points in 250 games prior to being acquired by Saginaw.

Saginaw takes a record of 4-8-2 into OHL action this weekend.
